“A place to come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I spent a week in Ai Linchi in the beginning of August. And we would like to thank Angelo, Maria, Paola and Andrea for their hospitality, great food and helpful touristic advice! The location is perfect - you are outside in the nature, and at the same time just 3 km from Lucca's center! The swimming pool is a great option - we came back to it every afternoon after having visited Pisa or Siena or some other beautiful town or village! The sea is also close by - 30 km or 25 minutes by car. It is a place to come back over and over again!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We spent 6 nights at Ai Linchi and loved the place! We based ourselves there while exploring different parts of Tuscany on day trips in our hire car and would say it’s a great central location.

We stayed in one of the double B&B rooms and found it roomy and comfortable, and the en suite bathroom spotlessly clean.

The family are extremely warm and friendly and gave us top local tips.

We enjoyed the continental breakfasts which had a good selection, but the biggest highlight was dinner, which you can take at an additional €25 per person including wine. I cannot stress how good this was. Our general rule is to eat at a different place each night of the holiday but the meals at Ai Linchi were so good both in terms of quality and value we went back 3 times! I was a little worried as I don’t eat meat, but this was no problem and I was served a beautiful variety of vegetable dishes with produce from their own farm. Additional wine can be purchased for just €5 per bottle.

The setting is so relaxing looking out to the mountains and countryside. We enjoyed sitting out in the garden and spending time around the pool which is of a very good size. One little suggestion would be to provide cushions for the sunbeds.

We would recommend Ai Linchi to anyone looking for modern, clean, good value, friendly accommodation and very much look forward to returning in the not too distant future!

I found Ai LInchi searching for somewhere to stay that would allow me easy access to Lucca and Borgo a Mozzano. Ai Linchi is only 4km from the beautiful walled city of Lucca and is only 25 minutes drive to Borgo a Mozzano.

We arrived just after mid-day to be met by Andrea the son of the owner. The welcome was friendly and informative, he pointed us to a local restaurant for lunch and gave us directions to local banks for an ATM. We booked one of the three double rooms which are located above he restaurant/breakfast area. the room had spectacular views. We stayed in Lellero (70€ per night) which is decorated in lilac colour, is spacious with all that you need. The rooms do not have a fridge to store cold drinks. However cold bottles of water were readily available when we asked. Breakfast is included the the room price and for our stay was served under the veranda and consists of a good selection of cereal, bread, cheese, ham, eggs, yogurt, fruit and homemade cakes.

Dinner can be prebooked. The food is tasty and satisfying and typical of the local area. The menus is put together based on zero kilometre concept with vegetables and meat farmed locally. There is a lot included and we considered the 25€ per person cost to be well worth it and wine is also included.

Ai Linchi opened in 2010. In addition to the 3 double rooms there is a converted farm building which now comprises two houses each with 2 double rooms and one room with twin beds. It is an excellent option for a family gathering or friends getting together to relax. There is a large private pool and the surrounding scenery is a perfect backdrop. It is very peaceful.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Definitely for travellers who appreciate peace and quiet and natural beauty.
